Long-distance flights are responsible for a large proportion of air pollution in the world, and this is why some people argue that less important travel should be avoided. I disagree with this idea.

长距离的飞行对全球的空气污染还是负有很大一部分责任的,这也是为什么很多人认为应该避免不必要的飞行。我不同意这样的观点

If we impose restrictions on air travel, it may have an opposite effect. In a globalised world, it is not uncommon for people to travel other cities or countries for employment or business opportunities. If flying is expensive or unpopular, people are likely to travel by car and car emissions remain a severe problem. It is impossible to alleviate air pollution, a problem widespread in a car-dependent country.

如果我们对飞机旅行进行缩减,它会带来相反的效果。在一个全球化的世界里,出于工作或商业机会而飞到其他城市或者国家对很多人来说并不是一件稀罕的事情。如果飞行变的昂贵或者不受欢迎,人们可能会改乘汽车,而这些汽车排除的尾气也会成为一个很严重的问题。减少空气污染对于很多依赖汽车的国家来说几乎是不可能的。

Curbing air travel also has an adverse impact on travelers’ leisure time. This decision may deprive people of opportunities to travel overseas. One problem is that they may find it difficult to cope with stress by spending a vacation overseas, and another one is that they are unable to broaden their minds by experiencing different culturesAs a consequence, they cannot adopt different solutions to solve problems.

限制飞机旅行对于那些旅游爱好者来说也产生了负面的影响。 这样一个决定会使得人们失去出国旅游的机会。其中的一个不好的影响就是,原本可以通过出国度假来缓解工作压力的机会现在也变的非常困难;另外他们也不能去另外一个国家通过经历不同的文化而开阔自己的视野。这样一来,他们可能很难有不同的点子去解决问题。

On the other hand, it may be important to discourage non-essential travel and this initiative may have environmental benefits in some cases. Rising air fares may have a direct impact on travelers’ interest in leisure time, especially for those working people who tend to tighten their belts from time to time. As the number of flights declines, air pollution can be reduced. In contrast, it is less likely to curb car use, due to the fact that it is part of daily routine for many people today.

另一方面,减少非重要的飞行或许比较重要,并且这种做法在一定程度上能对环境问题带来一些好处。提高飞行的费用对那些热爱旅游的人们的兴趣来说有着直接的影响,尤其是那些需要精打细算果日的人。于是随着飞行次数的减少,空气污染也会得到改善。相反,想减少汽车的使用却不太现实,因为如今它已成为很多人的日常需求。

To summarise, imposing a curb on non-essential flight may not be practical or beneficial, although it may reduce carbon emissions

总结,对非重要的飞行进行限制可能不现实也不会带来什么好处,尽管它可以减少空气的污染
